It's not easy to miss these houses, as they are right next to the Chateau de Caen. They are the oldest houses in the city, and there's a plaque nearby explaining the history. However, there's not much to see besides to take a quick picture.

It will take you 2 minutes, but take the time to look for these houses from another time. So beautiful and rare.

If you are walking around the city, it is nice to see, maybe stop take a picture and voila.. but it is not worth going to Caen just to see this facade. If you happen to see it, good, if not, you will miss nothing extraordinary.

Taking into account the WW2 history of this city coming across these buildings was a reward in itself. Taken out of Caen they may be considered unremarkable. Worthy of a small detour.

Two houses built entirely of wood and well maintained. They are located in the city center and you can take a look while wandering around town.
